Tonight, my younger son and I spent the evening at the National Zoo. We had tickets for a picnic sponsored by the Smithsonian Resident Associates program. It was a lovely evening and we were able to walk around the zoo on our own before the event started. After eating, we went to various parts of the zoo which had special talks including the Reptile House, the Sea Lion exhibit, Amazonia, and the Small Mammals house. One of the more interesting things to see was an armadillo. She was a really strange creature.
It was a long day, but certainly a wonderful one for my son and me.
